Kuurne - Brussels - Kuurne 2024: Favourites

Wout van Aert - Kuurne - Brussels - Kuurne 2024: Favouritesfoto: Cor VosKuurne-Brussels-Kuurne has been called a Sprinters' Classic, but that's really an outdated label. Half of the editions in the last decade were won by attackers. Who are likely to turn out on top in the second race of the Flemish Opening Weekend?

Actually KBK is more hilly race than the Omloop het Nieuwsblad, but since the hills are situated further from the line, could suit fast men better. But since the most dominant in the peloton, Visma | Lease a Bike, likes to open up races very early, a sprint finish is not the most likely outcome. But of course it’s still possible.

Given the time of year, inclement weather often adds an extra element of excitement to the race. Yet, the forecast promises a dry day, although it’s windy.
